Hello! I am a postdoc researcher at Cardiff University and member of the National System of Researchers of Mexico (SNI) (2021-2024). My area of specialization focuses on the literary and cultural studies of space and time, mainly through the research line of the multiverse and the metaverse in fiction and popular culture. My topics of study are the multiverse in the humanistic and literary traditions, and the tempo-spatial challenges in the metaverse and techno-digital contexts. For this reason, I am interested in working in a cross-cultural and comparative dialogue between the sciences and the humanities from various angles that include literature, popular culture, and contemporary thought.
I have been a Postdoctoral Fellow granted by The National Autonomous University of Mexico (2019-2021) and by The Japan Foundation (2018), and Visiting Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of The Ryukyus (2022), and at The College of México (2017-2018).
In 2017 I received my PhD. Summa Cum Laude in Literary Theory, Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies, with a thesis on the Multiverse as an icon of transdisciplinary dialogue, at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Part of my thesis has been published as a book by a Spanish publishing house specialized in comics theory.
I am member of the Research Group “Pathologies of Subjectivity: Ethical and Political Implications of the Commodification of Life in Advanced Capitalism” of the Philosophy College of The National Autonomous University of Mexico, and the Research Group GREGAL (Cultural Circulation Japan-Korea-Catalonia/Spain) at the Department of Translation and Interpretation and East Asian Studies at the Autonomous University of Barcelona.
